CopyCamp update

The International CopyCamp Conference 2014, subtitled "Understanding the Social Impacts of Copyright" (see earlier 1709 Blog post here), is being hosted by the Modern Poland Foundation, which has launched an Open Call for speakers. The event takes place from 6 to 7 November (and not as previously stated) this year in Warsaw, Poland, and the deadline for responding to the Open Call is 15 June 2014.  Full details of the event can be obtained here.

In this blogger's earlier post, he noted the commitment to discussion which was "multi-sided, balanced and unrestrained" and he wondered how easily these criteria would be fulfilled if the pro-copyright side in the great debate is unrepresented or under-represented. He has since received an impressive email from the organisers which has reassured him that the desired balance should certainly be achieved, given the range of views represented.  Thanks!
